Skiing in El Tarter

Country: Andorra

In a nutshell: El Tarter is a family friendly ski resort in the heart of Grandvalira

We like:

  • Part of the massive Grandvalira ski area which has an excellent modern lift system, 3 snowparks and wonderful mountain restaurants serving delicious regional dishes
  • Great facilities for families such as the Baba Boom Circus route and Husky dog sledding
  • The El Tarter ski-school offers British ski instructors which are popular with children and beginners as they progress
  • The El Tarter freestyle park, one of the biggest in the Pyrenees
  • Fantastic beginner and intermediate slopes

We don’t like:

  • El Tarter is relatively quiet and lacks the lively apres-ski scene available in neighbouring Soldeu and Pas de la Casa
  • Limited skiing for advanced skiers, but there are some great black runs including the ‘Aliga’ world cup downhill run
  • The town is quite spread out which means lots of hotels run shuttle services to take guests to and from the slopes each day

RESORT DESCRIPTION

El Tarter is not the most famous resort in the enormous Grandvalira ski area but it is certainly moving into the spotlight. After a lot of investment in new hotels, facilities and ski-lifts it is a great option for families or those looking for a quieter ski holiday.

We love the tree lined runs down into the resort. All beginners should set themselves the goal of skiing the blue ‘Esquirol’ run into the valley by the end of their holiday and advanced skiers can carve their way down the FIS downhill world cup run. El Tarter also lays claim to the enormous freestyle park and the Baba Boom Circus route which is extremely popular with young children.

The town is quite spread out but does have plenty of restaurants, bars and the inevitable tax free shops which can be found throughout all Andorran ski resorts.
